Wakefield-based property management and compliance firm Velway has extended its contract with National Care Group for a second year.
Velway’s contract to manage planned maintenance and compliance for National Care Group has evolved over the last 12 months and now sees Velway managing more than 60 UK properties for the Accrington-headquartered disability services and support organisation. These include head office buildings, plus 42 care centres and apartment blocks across England and Wales.
Velway said it had sustained planned maintenance and compliance across the portfolio at a monthly average of 98 per cent even at the peaks of the pandemic which, it added, had proved instrumental in securing the contract renewal.
Robin Harris, Velway’s managing director, said: “Working as a mutually dependable unit, we have overcome the ongoing challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic and established a benchmark that we will continue to improve on during the next 12 months. We are also excited at being involved with new projects during fit-outs and refurbishments of the client’s portfolio of properties.
Velway also confirmed that it has recently extended its contract with global technology company Ideagen to provide total facilities management services. It will continue to manage all hard and soft services at Ideagen’s 28,000-square foot head office in Nottingham for another year.
The FM provider said Ideagen had experienced significant growth over the last 12 months and it “has made sure that the head office has been maintained and cleaned to the highest standard to guarantee that Ideagen’s excellence is reflected in the appearance and functionality of its operational headquarters”.
Harris said: “The facilities management contract has evolved and developed over time as Ideagen has continuously and successfully managed the impacts of Covid-19 on its workforce and head office. It is amazing to see the company’s growth in a challenging environment and it is very rewarding for us to be part of their continued success.”
